Creatures of Yes - Tom


I was a little ambivalent about putting out such a stripped down episode of Creatures of Yes. But then I thought maybe it was a nice breather and a little contrast to the rest of the videos in the series. I think it's also a nice introduction to Tom, who we would need a little one on one time with to really get to know him. Most of the other characters get in there naturally, but he's a bit more reserved.

Time in a Bottle


Well, gosh! I don't remember seeing this as a kid on the Muppet Show. Maybe it wouldn't resonate so much with a little kid, but watching it now in middle age - I think it's possibly the most brilliant thing I've ever seen Jim Henson do. It's super sad and kind of funny at the same time. And I love all the technical elements - stirring actual liquids, then drinking them! The whole set is so intricate and kinetic. Love it.

Also - sorry about so many videos these days! Every post is a video! I wonder if it has anything to do with my journey into the world of video production? Probably. Anyway, I'll try to at least write something in each post.

*Update

This song is incredible! I guess I've heard it before, but... I don't know. I love it.

Can It Be?.... An RS-09?




I was listening to the soundtrack today for Full Circle when I thought I heard a Roland RS-09. What do you think?



The string sound that comes in around 2:35. The way the envelope cuts off the previous not when it goes to a new one. I think it's an RS-09. 

A few years ago I had a similar revelation while listening to a North of Cornwallis song. I asked Lester if it was in fact an RS-09 and he confirmed it was! I don't even remember what NOC song it was, but they are a terrific band, lest ye forget:


Well, gosh now that I am listening to this song. Check out the lead at 2:18. Must be an RS-09. It must.

Why do I even care?

ZOOM!


Kids being weird is always funny. Don't they all seem too tall or something? And is that the Ghostbox logo on the floor?
